- A vision of life without Smokey: a world with no Motown sound, where movie soundtracks are nothing but gusts of wind and nobody understands how you could have sunshine on a cloudy day
- Smokey’s imprint on music history: he fronted The Miracles, inspired the creation of Motown Records, gave the famed label its first No. 1 R&B hit, “Shop Around,” and penned more than 4,000 other songs that laid down the blueprint for modern soul
- How the world has thanked him: by inducting him into the Rock and Roll and Songwriters Halls of Fame, bestowing him with the Grammy Living Legend Award, and having the president of the United States decorate him with a National Medal of Arts award
- Songs you probably know Smokey wrote: “You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me,” “Ooo Baby Baby,” “I Second That Emotion,” and “Get Ready”
- Songs you might not have known he wrote: The Temptations’ “My Girl,” Mary Wells’ “My Guy,” Marvin Gaye’s “Ain’t That Peculiar”
- What you’ll get from an Evening with Smokey Robinson: a deceptively youthful showman with a thousand-yard smile delivering one show stopper after another in an earnest and angelic tenor

About Society for Performing Arts
Jesse H. Jones, a businessman, philanthropist, and member of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's cabinet, knew what he wanted for Houston: more art. Before his death in 1956, Jones set in motion a plan to create a new cultural center for the city, and under the leadership of his nephew John, the Jones Hall became a reality. To keep the ushers from getting lonely on nights when the Houston Symphony and Houston Grand Opera weren't playing the younger Jones created the Society for Performing Arts.
The SPA brought Carol Channing to Jones Hall in its first season and later grew to be the largest such arts organization in the southwest. It's even expanded from its majestic flagship venue to fill another pair of theaters a couple of blocks away.
